A *quick* update

Good evening! I'm sitting here in my cozy pj's watching the winter olympics with my husband and thinking "Geeze, why haven't people updated their blogs..." and then come to realize that I, myself, have not done so in quite some time!!! So I thought I would take a few minutes to catch you up on what's been happening...

School:
Wow, I don't even know where to begin...you've probably noticed I haven't blogged very much about my job, mainly because we are not allowed to post pictures of our students for privacy reasons which makes blogging about them a little more difficult. Also, my second year of teaching has been completely different than ever expected. I've had quite the class handed to me this year and often times it's simply all I can do to just make it until 3:00. Through it all, I've learned more about teaching in the past 6 months than my 4 years in college. Yes I still love my school and am excited to see what the next 3 months hold for me and my kiddos.

Us:
Josh and I are doing great. God is teaching me more and more about marriage and what it means to be a loving wife each day through his word and our encouraging friends. We are currently in the process of looking to buy a home! Ever since we married, this has been one of our top financial goals and dreams as a couple. We have found a wonderful realtor and have been house-hunting for the past month. We've toured about 12 or so homes and have found 2 that really like. Josh has been quite the teacher during this unfamiliar process. Right after we met our realtor for the first time, he took me out to dinner and we had some Q&A time...you see I was completely in the dark about half the things she was telling us. Phew, I'm so glad he know's what he's doing...and yes I'm learning...slowly but surely! Here's a couple pictures of us this past month:
Valentine's day...

Snow Day...

Our snowman and me...


Have a wonderful day and I hope to blog again soon!

hi emily! I love getting a little update on your life! Jordan and I ran into your mom at It's About Time a couple months ago and she told us what a challenging year you have had. You have been in my prayers! I'm super impressed with people who have the ability to work with children...I know it's gotta be super draining. I hope to see your sweet face soon. Love you!
